Chrysalis Care Invests in Resources to Support Foster Carers

Bexleyheath, UK – Chrysalis Care is trying a new approach from other foster agencies by investing more in the resources that support foster carers.

While most agencies focus on placing children in need with foster homes, this fostering agency in London works to make sure foster carers have all the support. With the belief that the agency and its carers are “in this together,” they have found that the best assurance to support the children in their protection starts with a focus on the carers.

Chrysalis Care provides all foster carers with comprehensive training as well as a Foster Care Handbook that lays out relevant policies and procedures. Carers also receive financial support in the form of allowances that the agency pays directly every 28 days. If carers are still struggling, they can join various support groups or contact their allotted social worker. The company explains its dedication to carers on its YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_5YGek3n_Mz3xhcbEXfTKA.

Chrysalis Care assists with a variety of placements from emergency to long term foster families. The agency even works with specialist placements such as for remand, children with disabilities, and young adults after they reach the age of 18.

Founded in 1997 by Lou and Lynda Boden, Chrysalis Care has over 22 years in foster care and supporting the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged youths. The couple possessed more than 40 years of childcare experience between the two of them as well as 15 years as foster parents. They understood the challenges that carers faced and built a foster care agency that addressed their needs as well as the needs of the children.

Today, Lou and Lynda’s daughters, Allé Pflaumer and Sarah Boden-de Mel, run the organization. Allé and Sarah grew up supporting foster children, giving them a passion for helping kids from a young age. Allé is a certified teacher and play therapist while Sarah is a qualified agency decision-maker and social worker. These distinctions make them both more than qualified to continue the family business. The team shares inspiring stories about their journey on the agency’s Twitter page: https://twitter.com/ChrysalisCare.

The company finds that the best metric of their value to the community is in the testimonials of those who work with them. People can find testimonials and reviews of the organization on its website and its Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ChrysalisCareFostering/.

With a focus on carers, Chrysalis Care is finding that families and foster children find the happiest outcomes when the carers have the resources they need. They invite interested families to reach out to the agency by contacting them via their website.
